    We have been to this restaurant several times before. Advantages: Good food, close to cultural district, will valet your car for free and hold until cultural events end, and will even hold your leftovers until you are ready to leave. Disadvantages: Can be extremely noisy, particularly when there is an event in the lobby, and the menu is somewhat limited.

    We had a group of 5 people and couldn't find a reservation anywhere that night. This restaurant was mentioned to us by a bartender in the Northside, and they had a table for us. I have lived in Pittsburgh for a while and never heard of it, so I was quite skeptical. I will say, the experience was really nice. Our server was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect. The food was just good, nothing to write home about. Overall, I would feel comfortable to bring another group back. It is a very safe choice.

    Location near Heinz Hall and The Benedum Center and across the river from the stadiums make this an easy choice for before the game or a show. And for that it's fine: quick, not too expensive, but a touch classy (not a dive). And--to be sure--the ambiance is very nice: modern and slick. The food, however, was nothing great. Burgers were extremely blah. And the service was out-and-out bad: out of ALL their muscles (a big part of their menu) and we were left unattended for long periods of time. But at the cost of mediocre food and bad service, I would go right back before a show because it scratches that itch well.

    Great atmosphere, great food. Service was sub-par. After speaking with the manger, he was very polite and explained that he had unexpected bigger parties and this was the cause. Just informed him that if we had been informed as the events of the night occurred, the perception would have been a lot different. I will try this place again, if service level remains sub-par will not dine here again, nor will I recommend this place to others.

    We have been here before and enjoyed the food enough to come back with a friend. This time the experience was less pleasing. The wait staff was excellent, the cocktails and appetizers (cheese board and short rib pierogis) were nice, but the entrees all had flaws in their preparation. The paparedelle pasta was undercooked (not al dente), likewise the risotto was underdone, and the gnocchi in the lobster with gnocchi were too soft and disappeared into the other ingredients. I wouldn't be so critical if the prices were not so high--the meal was well over $100 for 3 people. I would recommend this as a good place for drinks and appetizers, but have lost confidence in the entree offerings.

    Dined on 10/24/2014
    Our soup, salads/crab cake were fantastic. However, the man who served water/bread to our table was initially pleasant. When we told our Server that the bread tasted stale/dry, she said she'd have a new bread brought out. The man who'd served the bread walked by and look over with an annoyed expression. Our Server brought fresh bread and it was MUCH better, We told our server so and, when he walked by, told him the same. Rather than just being satisfied that WE were pleased, in a smart tone, he said it was bread cut from the same loaf. I don't care what loaf it was cut from. Perhaps the bread heated properly was what made it so much better. Nonetheless, I felt that he was rude and confrontational. Otherwise 4/5 Star

    I went to Braddock's on a date last Saturday before the opera and it was a wonderful experience. Both our entrees were delicious and the service, by Cody, could not have been any better. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants to enjoy some classic American fare. I wish I had made plans to try out the pierogies but I will the next time we go. Enjoy everyone!

    Had not been to Braddock's in a few years...it will be years before we consider going back. The savory pumpkin pierogies were excellent, but everything else was just OK at best. Our server seemed very good, but it was apparent she had just too many tables. There are just too many exceptional choices in the Cultural District to waste your time here.

    Braddock's was absolutely amazing. Everything my date and I ordered was beyond compare. I would highly recommend everything we ordered which included the Rabbit Parpadelle, Red Potato Gnocchi and Lobster, Bruchetta, the Raspberry Mule, Prohibition Pear, Godiva chocolate martini, and the creme brûlée of the day featuring sweet potato flavors. I came here for my birthday and think I might just make it tradition to come back every year after now.

    This restaurant, in the Renaissance Hotel, is a good pre theater(or concert) choice. The menu, not huge yet varied, offers varied size offerings that are tastily prepared--even if there's overkill on the number of "frites" accompanying several dishes. The service is very friendly and not rushed. It has a nice wine list and its menu is reasonably priced. What I like best about Braddocks is that, even when full, it is possible to have a conversation! The tables are not so close together that you're not sure if your with your table or the next-----UNLIKE most of the restaurants in the theater district.

  • Pittsburgh becomes Manhattans
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/5/2014
    The food is quite good, although the cheesy meatballs, a side offering for the pasta dishes, were just OK. Plates were colorful, veggie risotto excellent as was the rabbit pappardelle - vewwy wabbitty, with, or course, carrots. I do like manhattans, which one can build from a number of spirit/vermouth/bitters selections, unparalled in this town, with barrel aged elixers about to make their debut. The brasserie is just off the main lobby, which is a stone and tile construction of superior quality. A throwback to a time when masons were artisans with passion. Go before of after the theatre for a libation and stay for dinner.

    The brunch buffet had a great omelet station, but everything else was kind of "eh" especially for the price. The cinnamon raisin French toast was rock hard. I could not cut through it. The fresh fruit, eggs, and potatoes were decent, but it's nothing better than you'd find at Eat N Park. The blintzes were pretty good; I'm not used to seeing them on brunch buffets, so they were a nice surprise. I don't think I'll be going back there for brunch anytime soon.

    My husband and I enjoyed our gourmet meals and the superb service received during the dining experience. The Gerber chicken and the salmon dishes with their delicious sauces were cooked to perfection. Our wine per suggestion from our waiter complimented the food nicely. The only disappointment was the crème bruele dessert. It was kindly removed from our bill. We will definitely dine at Braddock's again!

    No one at our table liked the Mason jars which have replaced the water goblet. . It's not a picnic venue nor does it go with the decor. Bring back the regular glasses! In addition, the menu needs a major overhaul. Since it opened they have the same menu items. The dessert menu too needs to be revamped as well. No sorbets anywhere just the same old same old. It is quiet which affords a pleasant dinner conversation with company. No screaming is necessary to be heard.

    Another visit to Braddocks - another great dinner. Spouse had the scallops over red pepper polenta. I had the dinner sized portion of the arugala salad with the addition of grilled chicken, tossed with a light vinegarette. Our waiter, Justine, was excellent. Checking back just enough without being intrusive. While food is wonderful, restaurant seems to have a hard time deciding what it wants to be. Carpeting was replaced with a nice black & white bistro style tile and the upholstering is scheduled for replacement. The table covering is brown butchers paper, bistro style. But what's up with the glasses? Why serve the water/soda in a Mason ball jar? A better choice, keeping with the bistro style, would be a large, heavy glass. M

    We went for our anniversary and had a great time. We did go on a Thursday evening, I'm assuming a day that is normally not that busy, so it was quiet and private. It was the only time I have been there so not sure how busy it gets. The food was good and the service was great. They were very accomodating for our anniversary, sitting us away from other guests and giving us complementary champagne. We will definitely be making a trip back. Side note: I heard their brunch is really good, but I haven't had a chance to go for it.
